Jonah Hill found no humor in a French comedian who took a dig at him (in French) during an interview, causing him to attempt to get back at her.
Maybe the joke got lost in translation?
Jonah has starred in plenty of raunchy comedies over the years. But while promoting "War Dogs" with Miles Teller, the duo stopped by the French talk show. However, comedian Ornella Fleury, steered the program another direction when she began talking about sexual fantasies about the actor.
She then made him the butt of the joke and the video from last week has gone viral.
She told Jonah, "It's when I saw you get [taken advantage of] by a three-meter-tall demon in 'This Is the End' that I told myself, 'Now that's the man of my dreams!'"
Jonah was listening in a translating ear piece as she spoke in her native tongue.
She continued, "My sexual fantasy would be that we'd meet up in a hotel room at night. We would chat, you'd make me laugh; you'd make me laugh a lot!" she said. "And then all of a sudden, you'd bring your friends [Leonardo] DiCaprio and Brad Pitt ... And then you'd go away!"
As she laughed and the tension mounted, Jonah reacted, and it was hardly pleasant.
"I'm glad I came to this show to get ridiculed by a local weather girl - it's nice," he said.
The Oscar nominee was reportedly so put off by the interview that he canceled the rest of his press tour. Jonah hasn't addressed the awkward interview, but Ornella did, saying she felt that she could joke around with him because she's seen him in movies.
"In fact Jonah, I really had the impression that I knew you, so last Friday I thought I was just messing around with a friend, but the reality is that we are not friends," she said, according to French news outlet The Local.
"No, the reality is that you two have two Oscar nominations, and I have two videos on my YouTube account. You have made films with Scorese and Tarantino and me, I have made an advert for Spontex," a company that makes cleaning products.
